      Abstract

      This paper is concerned with development of a predictive tool to determine the heat diffusion
      profile for heated water discharge into a body of stagnant receiving water. The process makes
      use of a thermal imaging camera to measure the discharge plume from a range of sites in
      order to observe the actual discharge and then to provide a mathematical model that will
      allow British Waterways to satisfy the Environmental Agency regulations. In addition the
      sites are replicated in a laboratory environment with a scale model tank that allows the
      mixing zones to be measured under variable conditions. In this case the heated water is dyed
      to provide a visual plume in addition to the thermal image. The plume and mixing zone are
      then predicted using appropriate software such as Matlab, the model being optimised to
      reflect the real measured discharges.
